Boswell in Holland 1763-1764. Edited by Frederick A. Pottle.
by [Literary Journal] Boswell, James.

Publisher Information:
McGraw-Hill,, New York:: 1952..

A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine bright unclipped dust jacket with a touch of edge wear. These memoranda and letters from the time a young James Boswell spent in holland studying the law provide an intimate look at the famous biographer. Boswell seems a man troubled by depression as well as pressure from his father and a desire to raise himself socially. He can also be a kind of moral scold to the people he valued most. Not necessarily an attractive character but his candor and intimacy are what is valuable to a reader interested in how people really lived in the distant past.
